Lou Lou's Vintage Fair does Manchester

Image
I'm never happier than when browsing preloved wares at a vintage store, so I'd been looking forward to Lou Lou's Vintage Fair for a while. At Manchester Uni's Whitworth Hall on Oxford Road, it was the perfect setting, with endless different stalls set up in the huge venue and an excellent rock and roll duet performing at one end (my favourite type of band, go Johnny go!).

I'm really picky with jewellery so I rarely buy it, there was a point maybe 10 years ago when ASOS was an absolute treasure trove for me but I feel like I have to look a little harder these days. I also think when I was in my late teens bling was definitely more tacky than current (RiRi has much to answer for!), so I remember abundant jewellery not being so much a thing. If anything it was boho, feather necklaces and earrings etc (which have come full circle but now they come under 'tribal', 'traveller' or 'gap year' style fashion). 

Beauty Product Roundup

So I thought I would do a rundown of all the products I use and have come to rely on daily. Some are more expensive while others are bargains, I do believe that you can pay more for certain things and see the difference but at the same time, many hardworking beauty products are great value too.

A Fashionable Life

So this afternoon I attended the A Fashionable Life event for the Speakeasy Bury charity, held at Bury town hall. It was a great chance to get an insight into the fashion industry from both an editorial and a design perspective as Vogue's fashion features editor Laura Weir interviewed Henry Holland. They're old friends who go way back so it was bants all the way and made for a relaxed and humorous interview, with Henry answering every question honestly and at the end, questions were opened up to the audience.

So I'm attending the 'A Fashionable Life' event at Bury Town Hall tomorrow which sees Vogue's Fashion Features Editor Laura Weir interviewing Henry Holland. Excited isn't the word! Currently trying to think of the most useful questions possible, in order to gain some invaluable advice from these amazing people with envy-inducing careers, whom I definitely wouldn't cross paths with in everyday life.
